Queensland records no community COVID cases on Easter Monday amid ‘bumper’ weekend

Queensland has recorded no new cases of locally acquired COVID-19 as desperate tourism operators celebrated a “bumper” Easter weekend.

Deputy Premier Steven Miles said the four new cases were all international arrivals in hotel quarantine.

“That means there is no further community transmission which is fantastic news,” Miles said.

“It underlines how it is better to have to lockdown for three days than for three months.”

The state recorded four positive infection cases in hotel quarantine from travellers returning from Papua New Guinea, two from Lebanon and one from India.
